Ebony Neck Cleaning?

What is the best way to clean an Ebony neck? Can I use wire wool or should I just use lemon oil?

Re: Ebony Neck Cleaning?

First?........Personally, I would "never" use lemon oil. It drys out the wood. Good ole woodwind oil, or bore oil is excellent. It really adds lustre to the wood.
Second? I would go to Rich Harris' site, IbanezRules. He has an awesome tutorial with pics on cleaning fretboards.............well.........the whole guitar.
Of course............this is gonna start one of those lemon oil arguments probrably.
But like I said..............its only "my" opinion

Bore oil or fretboard oil from stewmac.com and rub it in with 0000 steel wool.
